Design Studio II aims to link with Industry partners, who will be selected for their emphasis on New Technology in fabrication, garment construction, yarn use, fabric manipulation etc. It will allow students to access industry expertise, technical innovation with the ability to further experiment with the new technology for clothing design. Although the students will direct their research and design work, industry will play an important part in this process through advising on the technology of the materials and their characteristics. The students will develop a collection of ideas and developments around the technology / materials and further develop a small collection in conjunction with the industry partner. Emphasis will be placed on the ability to translate innovative ideas with a high level of critical thought process illustrating the best use of the materials / technology. The students will submit a portfolio of their design development ideas, recordings of the process and a collection of well-constructed prototypes.
